Island Jelly Cakes Are Taking Over Pinterest & These Are the Most Showstopping Ones

It seems like everyone we know started to get serious about baking in the past year, and though some of us were set on perfecting sourdough or mastering the perfect banana bread (it’s brownie banana bread, FYI), others took their new skills in a more whimsical direction, and the jelly island cake was born. These cakes buck the “naked” cake trend in a big way, and they’re definitely livening up our Pinterest feeds. Bakers are getting creative, making islands out of cake and frosting, and surrounding them with lagoons and seas made of gelatin. Interested in trying one for yourself? These are some of the prettiest island jelly cakes we’ve seen.
